We are highlighting the SD Art Prize: New Contemporaries featuring Artist nominated in the emerging category for the SD Art Prize 2009 and we hope that many of you will attend the reception at Noel-Baza Fine Art and see the exhibition. There is a wide range of mediums represented as well as a range of age and experience. The most important point is that not all these names are known to all of us. We are celebrating the excellence of these artists and the high quality of the artwork nominated. We encourage you to see some of these artists with more indpeth exhibitions. Watch for the following shows during 2009.
Emerging artist definition: artist who are emerging with new, fresh ideas. This is not about the age of the artists or the exposure they have had, but what art they are creating now and in the past three to five years. We think of these artists as emerging from the darkness into the light of the public view.
